Another July Paper Pumpkin Project

31 Jul

Here’s the last of my July Paper Pumpkin Projects.  This time I created a card.  I absolutely love the honeycomb background stamp that came with this month’s kit and I used it on the banners that came from the kit as well!  When looking for the perfect saying and cutesy stamp, I pulled from the June Paper Pumpkin Kit.  They work great together, or at least I think so!  What do you think?

July 1-2

Extra Supplies:

Cardstock:  5-1/2″ X 8-1/2″  + scrap for circle of Pool Party, 4″ X 5-1/4″ White, 3-3/4″ X 5″ Midnight Muse
Big Shot:  Honeycomb Embossing Folder, Circles Framelits
Punch:  Small Oval
In Color Dahlias


July Paper Pumpkin Projects

27 Jul

When I saw this month’s Paper Pumpkin, it immediately screamed Scrapbook Page to me.  So, the first two projects are just that, scrapbook pages.  Once again, I had so much fun playing with the kit.  It was great “me-time”!

Project #1    12 X 12 Scrapbook Page

12 X 12 Scrapbook Page

Extra Supplies for this 12 X 12 Scrapbook Page include….

Project #2 – 8 X 8 Scrapbook Page

july 6-2

Extra Supplies:

Cardstock:  8 x 8 sheet of Pool Party, 5-/14 X 7-1/4 piece of Tangerine Tango, Scraps of:  White, Summer Starfruit, Pool Party, Midnight Muse, Tangerine Tango
Punch:  1-1/4″ Circle

Project #3:  Celebrate Money Holder Card

july 3-2

july 4-2


Cardstock:  1 sheet of white, scrap of Pool Party
Accessories:  3 brads

To create the patterned circles, I just punched a mask out of xerox paper using the 1-3/8″ circle punch and then stamped through it.


I have one more card to share, but I think it’s going to have to wait until tomorrow as time has gotten away from me.  Until then…happy stamping!

Cycle Celebration Meets Simply Pressed Clay

2 Jul

By now, I’m sure you’re getting the idea that I love this Simply Pressed Clay!  So much, in fact, that I’m even going to use it on my Convention Swaps this year!  (List of things to do today:  55 Coastal Cabana Roses!)  Anyway, this card couldn’t be easier.  To do these little hearts, I just rolled out the clay and used a fondant heart cutter that I had and cut out the hearts.  They were then colored with my aqua painter and reinker.


Stamp Set:  Cycle Clebration
Big Shot:  Mosaic Embossing Folder
Colors:  Melon Mambo, Island Indigo, White
Designer Series Paper: 
Quartrenary Fancy
